System Administration Guide: Virtualization Using the Solaris Operating System

Network Installation

To do a network installation, use the -l option and provide a path to the network installation image. When giving a machine name or IP address, the domU must be able to get to that install machine directly, not go through a router to another net. For example:

-l nfs:install:/export/xvm/xvmgate-70i72-nd

You can also use an IP address instead of a machine name. For example:

-l nfs:
